### Rectangle Proofs

A rectangle is a parallelogram with four right angles and congruent diagonals.

• Show that both pairs of opposite sides are parallel and that adjacent sides are perpendicular forming right angles.

- Use slope for 4 sides

• Show that both pairs of opposite sides are equal and diagonals are equal.

• Use distance for 4 sides and 2 diagonals

• First prove the quadrilateral is a parallelogram using any of the 4 methods and then show that the diagonals are equal using the distance 2 times.

• First prove the quadrilateral is a parallelogram using any of the 4 methods and then show that the parallelogram has a right angle by using the slope of 2 adjacent sides.

** Be sure to include a concluding statement with each method of proof **

Example of the 4 methods and then show that the diagonals are equal using the distance 2 times.

Prove the following quadrilateral is a rectangle

• J( 1 , 3 ) K( -3 , 6 ) L( -9 , -2 ) M( -5 , -5 )

HOMEWORK: of the 4 methods and then show that the diagonals are equal using the distance 2 times.Prove each of the following quadrilaterals are Rectangles

Use a different method for each of the first 3 proofs.

Ex.

• A( 0 , 2) B( 4 , 8 ) C( 7 , 6 ) D( 3 , 0 )

• P( 0 , 5 ) Q( 3 , 4 ) R( 0 , -5 ) S( -3, -4 )

• M( -2 , 1 ) A( -1 , 4 ) T( 8 , 1 ) H( 7 , -2 )

• J( 0 , 0 ) K( a , 0 ) L( a , b ) M( 0 , b )
